Going Too Far

by Tony Hendra
 

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Hendra has written the first account of what he calls ``Boomer humor,'' typical of the period from 1955 to the present. He covers improvisational theater, e.g., Second City, and anti-establishment magazines, e.g., Mad and National Lampoon . Though he does include lively accounts of such early anti-establishment humorists as Mort Sahl and Lenny Bruce as well as such contemporary comedians as John Belushi and Eddie Murphy, some major figures, including Steve Martin and Woody Allen, are barely mentioned. Recommended for large public libraries and academic libraries emphasizing popular culture.Louis Vyhnanek, Washington State Univ. Lib., Pullman
